. my question is on religion. how big of a role does religion play in the overall aspect of terrorism. how big of a r ole has it played in the u.s.'s policy on counterterrorism? >>the question is what is the role of religion either from the terrorist perspective or the combating counterterrorism perspective. from the terrorist perspective what we have mostly found is that adherence from al qaeda broadly misinterpreted and taken extremist views and perverted islam as a religion to be able to coerce and otherwise control their followers in doing things that are very much what the tenants of islam would say. we quoted a scholar and others that talked about the prohibition of killing innocent civilians. when they talk about the majority of people being killed by al qaeda are muslims contradicted the religion of islam and pointed out they were violating the tenet. so in general, helping to highlight the perversion of the religion in terms of the information we are doing has been helpful and that is what was done with the deadly vanguards report. it identified the problems that al qaeda wa

its own religion and incompatible view of the other will have to put up with one another and find ways to work together. with apple and google, we compete in the mobile world, but we are also search partners. >> there are others who are not members of the gang of four. >> there are many potential candidates. twitter is 1. even netflix, which i mentioned. and of course microsoft is absent in my calculation, although they certainly wish that they were. [laughter] >> we have some very good questions from the floor that relate to some of this. one question is "hall will scrutiny over the use of user data affect business strategies ?" >> what happens with all of these companies that collect a lot of data, each of them has different views -- rules. their behavior will largely be controlled by the european privacy laws. there's something called the european data protectorate, which is all about what you do with this data. and old simile, the street solution is going to say the data is owned by the person, not the company, or at least not to be used without that person's permission. anonymous
divide on the issue of gun control. >> reporter: a survey by the public religion research institute, conducted before the newtown shooting, found six in ten catholics support stricter gun control laws, compared to about a third of white evangelical protestants and 42% of white mainline protestants. >> not just about threology but culture and geography. >> reporter: poll found white evangelicals were most likely to own guns. many live in southern and rural areas where guns are a way of life. so, what does the bible say about weapons? >> scripture teaches that christians are not to take weapons and avenge other people however there is an affirmation that government has a divine role to punish evil ers do and so there's ten eggs. >> reporter: with polls showing increased support for gun laws after newtown, could we see a shift among evangelicals? >> may be a tipping point where more folks in those communities realize there are things we can do as a society to tamp down this kind of mass violence that doesn't remember taking away everybody's guns. >> reporter: pastor daniel darling is c
to bear arms in this country and believe it is as core to them as freedom of speech or freedom of religion. i think the laws that are on the books now would not have kept someone like my father from having a gun. we have real issues on mental health that have to be addressed. we are not seeing money put into programs on the books. but i don't understand why anybody needs an assault weapon in this country. i hope that everybody will come to a table. otherwise people are going to go to their corners and fight not seeing what we need to see get done. >> when you see a movement to restrict gun ownership rights, the inevitable outcome is gun sales, magazine sales, ammo sales guthrough the roof. it is the polar opposite intention of what people on debbie's side. argument want to see. >> we saw this before president obam was elected, when hadt looked like he was going to be elected in 2008 and the time period between the inauguration, you see the big jump in gun sales. there has been some degree of... too much concern on the part of gun owners and people said, the president's going to take away a
at public schools in indiana amid what he calls attack on religion, is this a good idea? >> let's ask fox news religion contributor father jonathan morris. >> anger people and i would put this on facebook and twitter and people got angry and my mom called me and got upset. >> alisyn: wow. >> i said i don't agree with this legislator's approach. let me explain why. when we say public schools, what we really mean is government schools. these are -- we have given to the government the role of educating our children. i think that's a bad idea in the first place, very bad idea. but if we say that the government can mandate in in case a certain prayer, you must-- all schools pray our father. and we should also be totally open to the idea of another legislator or another court saying that bypass saj age of t koran should be mandated in the school? do you we want that? very good answer. >> you're correctly uncomfortable with the the government pushing a specific dogma and i share that. on the other hand, government schools push a certain dogma every day. i mean, textbooks, push a certain world vi

, in mythical narrative's, whether it is creationism, or the fact that muslims are a satanic religion. you cannot rationally argue with people who think the earth was created 6000 years ago and adam-and-eve used to ride on the backs of dinosaurs. the only thing you can do is reintegrate them into the economy. that is what frightens me. when you fall to that level of desperation, and this is exactly what tore apart yugoslavia with these ethnic, nationalist identities. there becomes an inability to communicate. a year ago we had several hundred white guys dressed in confederate uniforms margin to montgomery. half of that city is black. to carry out a re-enactment of the inauguration of jefferson davis. it cannot carry out a dialogue. that is what frightens me. we have powerful movements that celebrate the gun culture, the language of violence, that demonize the marginal and the week, whether it is african-americans, homosexuals, women, liberals. i see that breakdown occurring because of the economic disintegration, and having lived through it in places like yugoslavia, the rational argument

role in peace in the world and tolerance within cultures and different religions? do you see there is hope for peace in the world? >> i am an optimist to a fault. if you do not inherently trust your fellow men and women to be smart and decent, then you do not believe in democracy and free market in education, because they are all a bunch of dolts. your question about social media is right. it is not a mediator, it is connecting us. it is important to say that those revolutions were not done by tools, they were done by brave people. they have hard work to do right now, and let's hope these tools can help them. but the responsibility is all there. >> amanda, i have a question for you. if i were able to produce a ukulele, would you be willing to play us a song? >> may be.
